Linux Installation Script

Hi All,

I am trying to customize linux for my device. I want to install all the images in some other folder instead of /boot. I have done it by editting /sbin/installkernel. Installation (make install) is worked successfully. But i am not able to find new kernel entry in /lib/modules/ .
(eg: /lib/modules/{NEW_KERNEL_VERSION}/)

In which Makefile/Script, command for generating /lib/modules/{NEW_KERNEL_VERSION}/ is written?

I have edited kernel/arch/x86/boot/ and /sbin/installkernel for doing my custom installation. Do I need to edit anything other than this to get the solution for my above problem?

i think, the versions have been deleted(i am not sure about this). You can check in the files mentioned--
new-kernel-pkg and new-memtest-pkg both are in /sbin.
